Solved How can I fix/repair a corrupted PDF file?

June 19, 2015 at 12:21:32
Specs: Windows 7
Does anyone have any recommendation or procedures for repairing a corrupt PDF? When I open the file I get "There was an error opening this document. the file is damaged and cannot be repaired." There seems to be a myriad of tools out there but none that I could describe as reputable. Help me?

I don't happen to know the software which shows in the link you provided? Can you vouch for it personally? It appears to be something you have to pay for. We try to suggest free software on here wherever possible.

I'm always torn between deleting these types of posts or not.

Yes, the text sounds spam-ish, but if it is a viable suggestion that will solve the OP's issue, who am I to deny him the opportunity to research/purchase the software if he so chooses?

I don't see any free software suggested, so if the only option is the purchase path, should we hide that from the OP just on principle?

Yes, the suggestion did come from a member who joined computing.net on the same day as he posted the suggestion - which certainly raises the suspicion level - but that still doesn't mean that the suggestion isn't a viable option.

So, is it spam? I don't know. Is it a viable solution for the OP? Perhaps. Should I delete the post and thus deny the OP the opportunity to check it out on his own? Once again, I don't know.

Color me torn.

Yes, I felt torn too, which is why I didn't use the Report link. In the light of your thoughts I guess doing nothing could be the best option.
